What Clients Are Saying:

My big triumph was on the beach two weeks ago. Arwyn gets to be off leash at the beach (she's been on the long line on forest hikes for months now) and there was a deer eating seaweed... the dogs, of course, blasted off after the deer up the steep bank... I called... AND THEY CAME BACK!! A miracle. Well, the miracle of training.

Hero has been making lots and lots of progress. His only setbacks have been when I have pushed him too far. I am on summer break from teaching and have been dedicated hours each day to his training. Too many great stories to share, but I do have to share this one, for me it was his "graduation." Ever since our sessions with you at the house, I have been working with Hero on an "away" command, where he keeps away from being right in front of doors. For the last months, I drop treats on the floor at the end of the hallway by my living room as I go in and out the front door. I do it 100% of the time. A few weeks ago, high winds blew open the front door at 7:30 a.m. while I was sleeping. I heard Hero pacing in the living room and then whining. I got up to investigate and found Hero waiting patiently in his "away" location, waiting for his treat, rather than go out the un-supervised wide open front door and into mischief. It was worth every treat I had spent!!!!!
